Said via translate:

1. impressed with speed, breaking and driving it into the corners.
2. Evolved properly in every way from the last model
3. Will be worth a fortune in the future
4. Its the one
5. Comparable to $15m yen ($105k USD) s2000.
6 Fun, fun, fun

He touches on how he feels like this might be the last one (ICE Type R). He mentions how it feels deliberate and made with purpose.
He also refers to electrification of new cars from 2035 a couple times and how he grew up in a good era.

I cant help but feel bad for the future of car enthusiasts. I'll be buying this car for my sons (both under 10) as much as myself.

I came here to post this video but I saw it's already posted. Tsuchiya was so happy with the car. He did say in +R mode the stability control still kicked in so I wonder if there is some special thing you need to do to disable it. He did say the stability control is more advanced than the FK8. I want it so bad but I'm resigned to waiting a while.

From 14:30 on (when he has the passenger) the stability is off completely.

He also said it was too bouncy in R+ mode and that is on track.... it did bounce like hell but the beauty of the FL5 now is the individual modes.

not sure why car makers keep over damping in sportier modes. Germans seem to strike the best balance between spirted driving and daily drivability. Bouncy suspension actually gives you less confidence because the grip levels become unpredictable. Nürburgring mode on the Golf R actually softens the suspension allowing tires to stick to the pavement.

I noticed the bouncing in the Piston Heads first look video also. They are bobbing all over the place.
Praise Odin for individual mode this time around.

The FL5 seems to be the same situation however. He adjusted the settings and seemed pleased.

Nring mode puts the suspension in comfort mode. He out the suspension in Sport from +R. He could've gone to comfort mode too.
